Geography: Burgundy, France Appellation: Beaujolais Features: Gluten-free
Crus du Beaujolais
AREA UNDER VINES
Rocky, chalk-clay soil with vines from 10 to 60 years old. Yield is 60 hl/ha.
Alcoholic Fermentation during 15 days took place at low temperature controlled stainless steel vats to preserve the freshness and the Chardonnay aromas, followed by a semi malolactic. Then the Beaujolais Blanc stays in those vats for the aging with 20% in oak barrels. It is bottled 8-9 months after the harvest.
TASTING NOTES :
This white wine is gold yellow with silver glints and reveals ripe and citrus fruit aromas on the nose. On the palate, the attack is neat and straight, with a lot of finesse. The aromatic complexity shows up again during the retro- olfaction giving a rich long-lasting final taste.
A rare Beaujolais jewel, this appellation is an expression of Chardonnay grapes, coming from clay-limestone soils. This selection should get you to appreciate the typicity of this grape variety grown on terroirs exclusive to the Beaujolais region. A secret to discover and share.
Tenuta i Fauri, Baldovino Montelpuciano d’Abruzzo Ros(2017)
Geography: Abruzzo, Italy Appellation: Montepulciano d’Abruzzo
Tenuta i Fauri is not simply the brand name of a company, it is first and foremost a family, dedicated to wine production for many years, testifying to this is the vaguely ethylic nickname that has accompanied the estate for generations, the mark of an ancient vocation: Baldovino.

The winery is located in the heart of the province of Chieti, amid the hills that drop gently down from the Majella Mountains to the sea. The thirty-five hectares of vineyards, cultivated in a suggestive and happy framework, produce sincere and elegant wines that lead back to the areas of origin and maintain, unaltered, the characteristics of the varieties.

New York Distilling Company will show, Dorothy Parker american Gin!.
The earliest distilleries in Brooklyn date back to the 1700’s. During Prohibition there were over 50,000 illicit stills in New York City. Since Prohibition however, the ethereal perfumes of distillation have been largely absent…until now.
The New York Distilling Company builds on this dream by establishing one of the nation’s premiere craft distilleries.
In an age of restless brilliance, Dorothy Parker was a singular sensation. A new Yorker at heart, her national celebrity sprang from her sharp, biting humor and widely quoted quips. Regularly seated at the famed Algonquin Round Table, she occupied the city’s cultural and intellectual center stage. An iconic enthusiast of gin and an unconventional woman, no one could have been a more interesting drinking companion. Dorothy Parker American Gin – a blend of traditional and contemporary botanicals including juniper and elderberries, citrus, cinnamon, and hibiscus – is as delicious in a Gin & Tonic as it is in a Gin Daisy.
